... disparate

I was born in a emmigrant family - as is everyone in what is now known as America.

There is a good reason why I like Ben Franklin... and other models.

We will use many models and working examples in our Project.

. . . but Ben? He's just great!

. . . Not perfect - - - just GREAT !

"Like most citizens of his time Benjamin Franklin owned slaves and viewed them as inferior to white Europeans, as it was believed they could not be educated. His newspaper the Pennsylvania Gazette advertised the sale of slaves and frequently published notices of runaways. However, he also published antislavery ads from Quakers.

After 1758 Franklin gradually changed his mind when his friend Samuel Johnson brought him to one of Dr. Bray’s schools for black children. Dr. Bray Associates was a philanthropic association affiliated to the Church of England. In 1759 he joined the association by donating money.

Abolition Society
In 1759 he met Anthony Benezet who started a school in Philadelphia and who later co-founded the Abolition Society. In 1763 Franklin wrote that African shortcomings and ignorance were not inherently natural but come from lack of education, slavery and negative environments. He also wrote that he saw no difference in learning between African and white children.

In 1787 Franklin became the President of the Philadelphia Society for the Relief of Free Negroes Unlawfully Held in Bondage, often referred as the Abolition Society. The Society was formed by a group of abolitionist Quakers and Anthony Benezet in 1774. The Abolition Society was the first in America and served as inspiration for the formation of abolitionist societies in other colonies. The group focused not only in abolishing slavery but also in education, moral instruction and employment."

Everyone - Anyone is invited Anyone of Good Will - and we can hear opposing views
... to participate - to work with us.
. . . . . . . . White, Orange, Chocolate - and CHILDREN !
Yet the idea is to integrate these disparate types,
so they understand , cooperate, and help each other -
rather than disparage or fight each other.
A lot of people don't think about it, but there was/is another group that was/is even more oppressed than Blacks/Negroes/African-Americans. - - - oops.
There are a number of people who do not believe we should use titles African-Americans, Native-Americans . . . and what did my guy think and that group ?
I love that guy . . .
Remarks Concerning the Savages of North America.
(1784). by Benjamin Franklin about Native Americans

Savages we call them, because their manners differ from ours, which we think the perfection of civility; they think the same of theirs.

Perhaps, if we could examine the manners of different nations with impartiality, we should find no people so rude, as to be without any rules of politeness; nor any so polite, as not to have some remains of rudeness.

The Indian men, when young, are hunters and warriors, when old, counselors; for all their government is by counsel of the sages; there is no force, there are no prisons, no officers to compel obedience, or inflict punishment. Hence they generally study oratory, the best speaker having the most influence. The Indian women till the ground, dress the food, nurse and bring up the children, and preserve and hand down to posterity the memory of public transactions. These employments of men and women are accounted natural and honorable. Having few artificial wants, they have abundance of leisure for improvement by conversation. Our laborious manner of life, compared with theirs, they esteem slavish and base; and the learning, on which we value ourselves, they regard as frivolous and useless. An instance of this occurred at the Treaty of Lancaster, in Pennsylvania, anno 1744, between the government of Virginia and the Six Nations (1. A confederation of Iroquois tribes: Seneca, Cayuga, Oneida, Onondaga, Mohawk, and Tuscarora.)

There is a lot of philosophy, fact, and opinion bundled within this project, but let's move on to the actions -> HELP WANTED
We now find ourselves in a very odd sort of war. One side calls it a War on Terrorism, the other side says it is a war against Imperialists, invaders, Crusaders - to purify and convert to the One True Religion. Wow. Haven't we heard that song before? It is, in fact, a war of ideas and ideals. And there lies a new urgency.
C-City is designed to argue for and demonstrate peace and cooperation among disparate religions and ideologies.
Paris is a beautiful city, but it faces the same concerns with immigrants that many do in the USA.
Paris has some wonderful cafes
